Summer Vistas of Alaska

Feast your eyes on the mighty Mendenhall Glacier—a 13-mile chunk of ice

Experience the vast and picturesque landscape of the 49th state during a weeklong cruise aboard the luxury cruise ship Regatta.

Bring your passport because your trip begins in Vancouver, Canada, where you’ll have the opportunity to traverse Lynn Canyon’s hair-raising suspension bridge, enjoy high tea at the Fairmont Hotel, or meander through the calming classical Chinese gardens of Chinatown.

From there, spend a day traveling the Inside Passage to Ketchikan, Alaska, a city built around salmon canneries and sawmills. Here, experience the renowned collection of totem poles and take a hike through the Tongass National Forest.

The next stop, Icy Strait Point, is home to the largest native settlement in Alaska and is laced with strong ties to Alaska native cultural heritage. Whale watch at Point Adolphus or brave the world’s longest zipline, which offers stunning views of the harbor and neighboring mountains.

In Haines, see the Tlingit relics in the popular Sheldon Museum or visit the nearby Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve, located along the Chilkat River.

Next, stroll the busy downtown streets of Alaska’s capital city, Juneau, or escape to the mighty Mendenhall Glacier, a 13-mile chunk of ice, which can be seen by foot, kayak, or even helicopter.

Your trip will conclude in Seward, a lively harbor, and home of Kenai Fjords National Park. But first, view Yakutat’s Hubbard Glacier—the longest tidewater glacier in Alaska.
